Connected Everything Call for Feasibility Study Proposals

Connected Everything (CEII) is looking to fund a second round of feasibility studies. Projects can be between 6 and 12 months in length, and should complete before the end of June 2021. They are looking to fund up to five projects of up to a maximum value of £60,000 at full Economic Cost (fEC), with funding to be awarded at 80% fEC.

Connected Everything I defined a set of key thematic areas:

  • Industrial Internet of Things
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Data analytics and decision making
  • The future industrial worker
  • Service design and customisation
  • Design for future manufacturing
  • Systems analysis and control

CEII has added three new thematic areas, for which they are developing definitions and research challenges:

  • Creativity and design
  • Sociotechnical data-rich systems
  • Regulations

Proposals should address challenges at low TRLs (1-3) and be aligned with at least one of the thematic areas outlined above.
